WASHINGTON

In a letter to President Trump, thirty-five Jewish, Christian, and Muslim national religious leaders agree that Israeli-Palestinian peace is possible.

Presbyterian signers of the letter include the Reverend J. Herbert Nelson, II, Stated Clerk of the General Assembly, and former General Assembly Moderator, the Reverend John M. Buchanan, retired editor and publisher of The Christian Century.

In a statement released through the National Interfaith Leadership Initiative (NILI), the religious leaders state: “Based on the legitimate, long-standing aspirations of Israelis and Palestinians for national self-determination and security, a two-state solution still represents the most realistic way to meet essential interests of both peoples and to resolve the conflict.”
